Active Learning Techniques in Understanding Risk Associated with Planning

8 pagesPublished: September 26, 2020

Abstract

In the construction industry, projects involve a variety of techniques to communicate the project plan and the many parts associated with successful completion. While all are important elements of the project, the construction plan is a vital part of the project’s success and how it is created, used, revised, and evaluated. Educators use various delivery methods in the classroom to teach planning and scheduling but the many intangibles out of the control of the scheduler make it difficult to convey all the concepts associated with these key elements of the project. Using active learning methods, such as a board game, engages the learner, introduces intangibles and promotes critical thinking and problem-solving skills for the CM student. Results from the study will provide insight into active learning and the possibilities of developing learning tools that can assist young professionals in the field. This element of instruction is paramount to the success of the new transitional student in programs across the country. Passive learning experiences no longer mimic the active projects that are prevalent in the industry today. Using the results from this study will illuminate opportunities in the classroom using active learning as a vehicle for synthesizing knowledge.
